Clear to partly milky double terminated quartz crystal from a very small vein dig near Lovejoy in Montgomery County, North Carolina named the Ebeneezer's Folly Prospect, named for an early NC geologist, Ebeneezer Emmons, who mis-identified a radial quartz occurence as a new fossil, causing a national stir.  He was proven incorrect, thus the folly.  His historic finds were made very close to this quartz dig, so the name naturally followed.  There are a couple small imperfections, but overall in very good shape. Only a few collector quality specimens came from the prospect, so this is one of only a few representatives of the locality.  Measures 3 x 1.5 x 1.25 inches (7.5 x 3.8 x 3.1 cm).
